The International Preparatory School encourages students to strive to make our vision a reality and to lead in our world of change by developing and practising leadership, empathy and respect.
Each year the teachers recommend a group of senior students in Year 6 to take on the roles on Prefects and Monitors. These students are given support and help in developing critical leadership skills throughout their final year at IPS.
Each year, children in Years 3 to 6 elect class representatives who together form the IPS Student Council (SC). The SC is sponsored by some teachers.
The Student Council meets every two weeks and discusses ways in which they can encourage student involvement within the school while promoting student action and service. The Student Council are the student’s voice at IPS and make suggestions to the Head of School for improvements and changes that affect student life.Each year, children in Years 3 to 6 elect class representatives who together form the IPS Student Council (SC).

Extra Curricular Activities
There are many opportunities in Mauritius for children to be involved in a variety of new hobbies and sports while developing new interests and skills. We try to awaken some of these interests by providing Extra Curricular Activities for the children at the end of the regular school day.
The activities are offered from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and from 12:15 pm until 1:15 pm on Wednesdays.
Extra Curricular Activities (ECA's) are managed by the ECA Coordinator Mrs. Raumoo in the IPS Office. Activities are sent out to families each term by way of a Google form and all registrations must be made online. Registration is on a first-come, first served basis.
Activities are coached and sponsored by outside providers, IPS teachers or by Parents. In all cases, a fee will be charged. A percentage of this fee is returned to IPS for ECA programme a development.

IPS does not have a school canteen.
Students bring a packed lunch and break time snacks with them to school, and these are eaten at the designated break times. We provide seating areas, both in and outdoors where the children can sit and eat. All break and eating periods are supervised by teaching staff and class assistants, as is appropriate to the child’s age and maturity.
Northfields International High School is just across the road from IPS, and IPS students can order a packed lunch from their canteen. These orders are collected by IPS support staff and distributed at IPS to students. Details of this service can be requested from the IPS school office.
